Samsung Gem tips up on US site with no carrier

Samsung Gem specs revealed by product page

The Samsung Gem handset leaked last fall has now shown up on Samsung's website. Though it's not tied to any carrier, another, even earlier leak had it on Verizon's roadmap. The official product page does finalize the handset's specs, however.

The SCH-i100 Gem will run on Android 2.1 and sport a 3.2-inch, WQVGA (400x240) touchscreen display that's scratch- and smudge-resistant. The entry-level handset will support the 850/1900MHz CDMA frequencies used by Verizon. There is also GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth onboard. An 800MHz CPU powers the device, while storage is handled by a microSDHC card up to 16GB in size. A 3.2-megapixel camera, speakerphone and Swype software round out the main specs.

Pricing will be competitive, Samsung said, though neither the cost nor a release date has been revealed. [via PhoneScoop]
